An art masterpiece that became soon a city's landmark attracting families with kids, tourists as well as the local people. The sculptured fountain full of encoded messages and wisdom is a true magnet for all. It can be easily found opposite the Town hall.

Situated in a perfect location of the town, this fountain is a beautiful, intricately sculpted work of art. The sculptures are strange yet fascinatingly original! Well worth checking out.

The fountain is located in the old town square and is well maintained. You can sit on the chairs and enjoy a sunshine afternoon.
